Advice of Rig hts: 

The grand jury' is conducting an investigation of possible violations of Federal criminal 
laws involving: 18 U.S.C § 1030(a)(2) (intentionally accessing a computer without 
authorization and obtaining information with a value that exceeds $5 000) 18 U S C 5 
1030(a)(4) (accessing a protected computer without authorization or exceeding authorized 
access with intent to defraud), 18 U.S.C. § 1030(a)(5)(A) (intentionally causing damage 
without authorization to a protected computer) and 18 U.S.C, § 1343 (wire fraud). 

You may refuse to answer any question if a truthful answer to the question would tend to 
incriminate you. 

Anything that you do say may be used against you by the grand jury or in a subsequent 
legal proceeding. 

If you have retained counsel, the grand jury will permit you a reasonable opportunity to 
step outside the grand jury room to consult with counsel if you so desire.
